Ocala Breeders’ Spring Sale nets $82 million

Around 633 horses were sold for over $82 million during last week’s Spring Sale at Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company, including one horse that sold for $1,900,000.

The organization held its April Spring Sale of Two-Year-Olds in Training from Tuesday, April 16 to Friday, April 19.

Over the four-day sale, OBS reports that it sold 633 horses for a total of $82,086,500. Although the total is less than the $90.4 million sold during last April’s sale, that sale featured the sales of 699 horses.

Accordingly, the average price for this sale was a record $129,679, beating last year’s $129,335. The median price was also a record at $70,000, compared with last year’s median price of $65,000.

The horse that sold for the most during the four-day event was a daughter of Tiz the Law, consigned by Tom McCrocklin. The horse was purchasd by Donato Lanni, Agent for Michael Lund Petersen, for $1,900,000.

The bay filly is out of stakes winner Moonlight Sky, by Sky Mesa, a half sister to champion Abel Tasman, according to the organization.

OBS will next host a sale of two-year-olds and horses of racing age in June.

During the March Sale of Two-Year-Olds last month, OBS brokered over $66 million in sales, according to a statement issued by the company. At least four horses breached the $1 million sales mark during that three-day session.
